Deleting files


#1

I uploaded a .zip via FTP, extracted it via telnet, then enabled WebDAV for another user to access it.

Some of you may already smell the trouble. I STF’d and couldn’t find anything on this.

Many of my files wont delete. I tried via WebDAV, turned WebDAV off and tried via FTP & rm -f ./* but still no go.

In a rush last night to get something working, I repeated this twice. Now I’ve got two folders I need to delete and can’t. Plus I need to set this up again and give it another shot. How can I delete the files and how can I prevent this from happening again?

Thanks.

Have support chown the files back to your regular user for you.
